Book Review – Wrong by Jana Aston

in My Book Reviews

This debut came highly recommended by so many that jumped in after reading its hilarious blurb (she’s a barista that has a crush on one of her regulars, and then she realizes he’s her new doctor)! And not just a “doctor”.

Oh my God. My fantasy crush is a gynecologist. My gynecologist.

eek *gasp*!! eek Sounds like our kind of fun, and after a few of the latest thrillers I’ve read, I was ready to lose myself in a lighthearted comedy romance. This one seemed to have just the comedic relief I was looking for.

Allison: Also, has anyone else read Wrong by Jana Aston? It was yummy. Confession time: I am a bit partial to the book, I think, because I had a major crush on my previous OB/GYN. He was so dreamy. So cute and funny and attentive. Everything you want in a man, except for the whole “his face is in vagina all day” thing. He’d still be mine if I hadn’t moved out of state. I mean . . . . not “mine” . . . . just my doctor. Anyway.

This book is about a woman about to graduate college who works at a coffee shop and has a crush on a handsome older man who comes into the shop once a week. Then one day she heads to the local clinic for her first OB exam and some birth control because she’s about to go all the way with her BF, and the hottie coffee shop guy is the Dr.

So, the book is super fun. And super hot. I was totally in lust with the H. My only minor complaint was that it wrapped up so easily. Such minor angst over something that I thought would have been more angst-worthy. But it was really well-written and fun. If you need a break from a heavy read, it’s the perfect book!

Grey: Started Wrong, omg…so funny I’m loving it!

Lisa: Hi everyone. Just finished Wrong last night and thought Id post to let those of you who need a light pick-me-up read with just a tiny bit of angst to keep you on your toes….Wrong is perfect ….or right.!? : ) Read it and enjoy.

Marit: I LOVED Wrong too! ;) I was all over it yesterday. I kind of like it when there’s a bitch in the book ;)

Lee: Now now… Wrong aka ” CRUSH-WORTHY CUSTOMER ENDS UP BEING HER DOCTOR ” .. holy moly I can not recommend this book enough if you are in the mood for a very good laugh!! I was laughing superrrr loud at 2 AM throughout the ENTIRE book!! Just HILARIOUS!! I just wished there was more depth in the characters? Oh well..  BTW did you know the Jana Aston -author of Wrong- is JA HUSS’ PA?? I was completely blown away!!!

Linda: Just finished Wrong and Lev over the past few days!!! I’ll just say both were great!! Swoon worthy H”s all around!!!!!

LOL!! I LOVE how much you guys loved it. :D !! And I’m with you for the most part. It was pretty good and I did enjoy it, but it didn’t capture my every reading moment, and there were a few hiccups that kept me from loving it. I found that it was a little too… familiar.

Lisa: Wrong was lovely. The H was a hottie and kind of reminded me of Grey in all his ‘I cant keep you- I don’t do love- but I cant leave you alone’ glory.

Cheryl: I just read Wrong. It started off so strong and funny, but I wasn’t quite sure about Luke- was he a creeper or just hot-older, alpha guy and Sophie at times was so immature- which in all fairness she was 21 to his 36.

Maryse: I’m reading “Wrong”. I like it but it’s got a similar theme going on… we’ll see if I change my mind and love it.

Yep. You get the picture. ;) Super rich, dominant McBossyPants falling for the struggling virgin college student…

Be careful, Miss Tisdale.

For crying out loud! Why is he texting me? He’s on a date! I’m on a date! We are not on the same date!

…and I struggled with the main couple’s easy match. Why her? Why was he so intense?

“It’s my choice who I sleep with, Dr. Miller. I’m not sure why you even gave me a bagful of condoms if you’re just going to cockblock me from using them.”

“Don’t call me Dr. Miller.”

I mean, yes, I was “told” why, but I didn’t actually see it happening. I didn’t feel it happening.

And of course there was a little angst thrown in for good measure. The gorgeous woman occasionally on his arm that he has history with, that’s not ready to let him go. There were catty moments,

“You think a Miller marries a barista? It’s never going to happen, sweetheart.”

…misunderstandings, his obnoxiously snobby parents,

I’m excited he shot his mother down by including me in the theoretical plans, but this feels off. Why did he bring me to this train wreck?

and a few extra “reveals” that again made me wonder… why? HOW? How’d THAT happen, exactly… considering…? AND AND!!! How’d she figure THAT other thing out?

…but suddenly things start falling into place.

Just like that? It was just suddenly “obvious” to her?

I don’t even need her to confirm it. Everything finally adds up.


And it really wasn’t a big deal either way, in the grand scheme of the story, but I suppose an element of drama and secrecy, to keep things emotionally charged?

That said, it definitely gave me a few chuckles and was mostly a lighthearted read, so it could very well be just what you’re looking for!

3.5 stars

I agree Maryse! I really thought there would be more but I got a chuckle or 2 also. I hadn’t read the summary so I was shocked he was the gyno. They really shouldn’t of spoiled that part.

Thankyou for your honest review, I can always rely on you!

Exactly Maryse!! Great review!

I read this a couple weeks ago and now I’m having trouble remembering the details – so I guess they didn’t stick with me beyond the basics. I rated it 3.5 stars – it was an enjoyable read. I was a bit bothered by how crass he was and the names he would call her – a bit of a turnoff for me.

You summed it up perfectly! A fun read, and I loved how hot their bedroom scenes were. But overall, no real emotional tug for me.

It was fun though to imagine my former gyno . . . . lol
